The National Weather Service is predicting hot eastern and southern winds this weekend, which could send smoke from Central Oregon wildfires across the Cascades. Smoke could reach unhealthy levels in Salem, Eugene and the Southern Portland Metro area over the weekend, clearing up by Monday. The smoke could make its way as far south Medford, and fires in Southeast Oregon could send smoke into Klamath Falls and Lakeview.
The Department of Environmental Quality urges people in these areas to take precautions should smoke reach unhealthy levels.
